THE Westin Denarau Island Resort has reported it will remain closed until March next year.

This after category four Tropical Cyclone Evan wreaked havoc on what many considered the mecca of tourism for Viti Levu, Denarau Island.

"The safety of our guests and associates is of paramount importance and unfortunately, the resort sustained substantial damage from Tropical Cyclone Evan and is unable to continue to operate until emergency repair works are carried out to the accommodation buildings, including air conditioning and roofing shingles," The Westin said in a statement released last Thursday.

"All current in-house guests are being relocated to either the Sheraton Fiji Resort or the Sheraton Denarau Villas and unfortunately, we will not be accepting any new bookings for these resorts until February 2013," it stated.

It added that the Denarau Golf and Racquet Club, which also sustained some damage, was expected to have been opened this week.
